I Taste Just Like Candy

In typical fat girl fashion, I LVoe anything that smells like food.  I’ve found candles that smell like key lime pie, hand soaps that smell like oatmeal raisin cookies, and even a laundry detergent that comes in scents like cheesecake and banana nut bread! Oh Yum! Not only do I like things that smell like food, I like bath products that smell edible as well.  There’s nothing like a warm shower, followed by sweetly scented body crèmes, sprays, and lotions.

A few weeks ago, I wandered into a local Victoria’s Secret shop with a friend.  This isn’t a store I visit frequently as Victoria offers nothing big enough to cover any of my secrets.  As she browsed, I wandered to their Body Care section to sniff body splashes and rub on lotions.  I soon stumbled on their Beauty Rush collection and as I sniffed, I came across this lovely scent…

Candy, Baby

The smell definitely lives up to the name.  It’s very sweet and smells like candy, with notes of spun sugar and warm vanilla.  Yummy yum yum!

The Beauty Rush line also offers other sweetly scented fragrances like Sweet Tease with notes of vanilla cream and berries and also Love Addict which smells of strawberries and almond milk.  These scents come in body splashes, creams, lotions, and shower gels and can be purchased at any Victoria’s secret shop or online at  Get them 3 for $25.00. You can even mix & match!

Next is a product that I haven’t used in a few years, but that doesn’t diminish how good it smells.  I even gave a gift set as a Christmas present a few years ago….the bath products from Dylan’s Candy Bar!

Flavors offered are Chocolate Cupcake, Birthday Cake Batter, Strawberry Licorice, and Coconut Bon Bon as scents for sugar scrubs, lip butters, lotions, etc.  Prices range from $3.50 for travel size to $22.00 for regular size products.  Order directly from Dylan’s Candy Bar at

Another product that I found which smells simply delicious is Philosophy’s body products.  I first found out about Philosophy when Oprah featured The Gingerbread Man body scrub as one of her favorite things a few years ago.  Since then, I have purchased egg nog and cinnamon rolls scented shower gels, sugar cookie lip balms, and last Christmas a friend gifted me a hot cocoa shower gel that I still use.  Yuuuuuumy!!

This trio set, Under The Big Top, offer scents reminiscent of carnival and circus treats: animal crackers, cotton candy confection, and ice cream.  Philosophy also offers trio sets of berry topped funnel cake scents (Funnel Cake Stand) and milkshake flavors in the trio set Shake, Shake, Shake.  Pick up any of these sets from Philosophy for $25.00 each straight from their website

So with that said, instead of giving away candy for Halloween, smell like it!

Happy Shopping! ~The Plus Size Shopaholic~ Muah!
